My self-summary
**UPDATE** I now have a girlfriend. You may still feel free to message me if you just want to chat, or make a friend :) /UPDATE

"Nerds like us are allowed to be unironically enthusiastic about stuff… Nerds are allowed to love stuff, like jump-up-and-down-in-the-chair-can’t-control-yourself LOVE it. When people call people nerds, mostly what they’re saying is ‘you like stuff,’ which is just not a good insult at all. Like, ‘you are too enthusiastic about the miracle of human consciousness’.”
-John Green

I sing opera, I go adventuring in nature, I love travelling and road trips, and I spend most of my time learning things. My favorite website is Wikipedia. If I come across something that I haven't heard of or don't understand, I look it up and read about it, from both sides if there are sides. My favorite things to do with significant others are travel, sight see, and watch our favorite movies or shows while drinking wine and eating cheese and crackers and chocolate.
What I’m doing with my life
Currently pursuing a Master's Degree in Vocal Performance (that means opera singing). It will be my second Master's. Previous trajectories included: Avante-Garde Composer, Sound Engineer, Personal Trainer, Voice Actor, Singer-Songwriter, Mad Scientist, Sorcerer....
I’m really good at
I can literally, LITERALLY rub my stomach and pat my head at the same time, while whistling Dixie and hopping on one leg.

I don't know that I'm "really" good at anything, but the stuff I'm somewhat known for includes:
Singing, Acting, Composing, designing workout routines, drawing up nutrition plans, recording-mixing-editing audio/music, crazy voices, scientific thinking, finding giant trees, Writing, researching.....
The first things people usually notice about me
My smile :D I'm told that from a distance, my pecs seem very prominent.... Oh, you meant personality? I dunno. I think I tend to confuse people first. Then they like me later. Then they're confused again. Then they don't like me. Then they LOVE me :D

Most people would describe me as nice, nerdy, and opinionated.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I LOVE Opera. Pretty much the only music I listen to.

The Fault in Our Stars, Hyperion Cantos, Ender's Game, Wyrms, Wheel of Time, The Wild Trees, TED Talks, Primer, Inception, Airplane, Walk Hard, Game of Thrones, Futurama, Venture Bros., pizza, Chinese, Mexican (only in San Diego though).... I like movies a lot, and it's hard to think of specific ones I like more than others. I enjoyed the King's Speech, but didn't think it should have won best picture.

Did I mention I love Opera? I love Opera.
Six things I could never do without
The Internet, giant trees, intelligent conversation... Oh yeah, and I guess food, water, and shelter. (Ellipses...)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I recently realized that my life can mostly be boiled down to seven main interests, which I spend pretty much every minute of my life thinking about, reading about, or pursuing:
Music (singing specifically)
Martial Arts
Exercise and nutrition science
The Pursuit of Knowledge
Adventure (mostly old growth forests, and climbing giant trees)
Video Games
On a typical Friday night I am
Reading, playing video games, performing...
Update: In rehearsal.
Update: at Judo class!
Update Again: Back in rehearsals! (rinse, repeat...)
...taking you out to the opera!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I don't care for bell peppers. Red OR green. That's right, I went there.
The two of us
